NYCC: Day 2 in pictures

What would a comic book convention be without folks parading around in every manner of costume imaginable? A lot less magical.

Where else can you get a thumbs up from the Watchmen Banana?


The above photo is from Jürgen Fauth’s photos of costumes at NYCC 09, which also includes the iconic images of Fat Wolverine and Cell Phone Skeletor:



What would comic book pioneers like Joe Simon or Jim Steranko think of all these shenanigans? The truly amazing thing about a show like NYCC is that you could ask them yourself…

  1. It was great seeing Steranko at NYCC. It was also kinda funny to see that my daughter was taller than him… I always pictured Steranko as being much taller somehow.

  2. Michael says:

    I hope Fat Skeletor washes that costume in between cons.

  3. that would be UNEMPLOYED SKELETOR. he’s a friend and has great video blogs of evil! go watch them.

    he is also a frequent guest on Comic News Insider.

  4. And that’s the one and only C.C. Banana who does hard rock interviews and stuff.
